Development of Baggage Handling System decision making framework based on total cost of ownership In Reserve

Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) are critical pieces of infrastructure at every airport. They are large, complex, and costly to operate, and their lack of performance can have massive impacts on airport, airlines, and passengers. The research aims to provide airport stakeholders with a set of tools to make the best, transparent decisions regarding their BHS from a total cost of ownership perspective. Expanding on current... more »

Subsurface Drainage System Benefits in Airport Pavement Performance

This research would summarize the best of practices through survey of airports and consultants; evaluate the effectiveness of subsurface drainage configurations by investigating field performance of airport pavements with and without drainage features; quantify the cost and benefits of including subsurface drainage by comparing any potential extension in service-life with increased construction and maintenance costs;... more »

Airport Baggage Handling System Guide

To develop a comprehensive resource on Baggage Handling System (BHS) planning and design aimed at assisting airport planners, manufacturers and airport operators. The report will help planners and architects to design new BHS, expand or modify existing systems and provide improved operation and maintenance. The goal of the report should be to supplement existing design criteria including publications from TSA, IATA and... more »

Urban Air Mobility Market Study In Reserve

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is a safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation within an urban area, inclusive of small package delivery and other urban Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services, which supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations. In recent years, UAM has developed rapidly due to advances in technology and with pilot projects underway in Dubai and planned... more »

Electric Aircraft on the Horizon - Planning handbook for Airports In Reserve

Generate informed guidance for airports to plan for electric aircraft adoption. Electric aircraft could begin operating from airports within 3+ years. The aviation industry lacks a method to distinguish between marketing hype and realistic projections. A new ACRP report could provide help airports understand which sites are best suited for the viable technology associated with electric powered aircraft. Airports would... more »

The New Paradigm of Airport Terminal Traffic

As autonomous vehicles and their services propagate through an airport terminal, how will this disrupt the already crowded flow of terminal traffic. Research into the best way to regulate and direct these technologies is needed for practitioners to decide the best hierarchy of flow. These patterns of trafic should maximize safety and be based on the needs of the specific vehicles and services introduced.

Research Projects

Best management considerations in evaluating proposed vertical development on or near airports with airspace impacts.

Establish for the end user a process that would assist airport sponsors and the FAA to evaluate whether a development project is a true hazard based on evaluating imaginary and TERPS surfaces, recognizing current conditions at the specific airport. A goal for this project would be to define a process by which the FAA would accept a sponsor lead approval of a design, that may or may not conform to strict interpretations... more »

Implementation of Project Management Offices (PMO) in US Airports

Project Management Offices (PMOs) are a well-established concept in Project Management literature and they are widespread across much of the private and public sectors. However, the establishment of PMOs (particularly, enterprise PMOs or EPMOs) at US airports – many of which are local government entities – have traditionally lagged behind their contemporaries. Although some PMOs currently exist at US airports, they are... more »

Standards for Mechanical and Electrical Systems to Create Healthier Airport Terminals

In the wake of recent events concerning passenger health and wellness, airports are searching for new standards of development to help ensure they are more averse to the risks and immediate fallout associated impending viral and bacterial outbreaks. Guidance on how to plan and design mechanical and electrical systems to address these concerns is at the forefront of the aviation industry. This idea develops a program to... more »
